Zester Wins H.G.Bolton Sprint

Monday, 14th May 2012

Emirates Park's 5-time Gr1-winning stallion Danewin (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a black-type success (& 28th individual stakes-winner) when 5YO gelding Zester (Danewin-Ranzest, by Rancher) gained the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $80,000 Listed H.G.Bolton Sprint (1200m) at Belmont Park in Perth. Zester (ridden by Campbell McCallum for trainer Dan Morton) scored by a head from favoured 5YO mare Avante (Hurricane Sky-Chantruse, by Salieri) with a further short-head to fellow 5YO gelding Our Ol' Fella (Halo Homewrecker-Home Alabama, by Lomond Bay). Zester (a $220,000 yearling consigned by Redbank North at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 9 wins & 10 placings (including last month's Listed Northam Stakes over 1100m at Northam) from 30 starts for $262,340 earnings.
